Wick Rig Site Survey  

Upland Resources Limited (LSE: UPL), the oil and gas company actively building a portfolio of attractive upstream assets, is pleased to note that Corallian Energy Limited ("Corallian Energy"), as operator of UK Seaward Production Licence P2235 (UKCS Block 11/24b), has today confirmed the successful completion of the rig site survey over the proposed location for the forthcoming Wick well.

Corallian Energy is expecting drilling of the Wick well to commence in Q4 2018 following receipt of the outstanding necessary regulatory approvals and consents.

Steve Staley, CEO of Upland Resources Limited, said:

"The completion of the rig site survey is another important milestone as we look to drill the potentially transformative Wick well. We look forward to the receipt of the necessary regulatory approvals to enable the well to spud in Q4 of this year we will continue to update the market on further developments."

Background to Upland's interest in the Wick prospect

In November 2017, the Company's wholly-owned subsidiary, Upland Resources (UK Onshore) Limited ("Upland UK"), entered into a conditional agreement with Corallian Energy to farm in to a 40% interest in Licence P2235, containing the Wick prospect. The farm in agreement between Corallian Energy and Upland UK was then completed on 24th May 2018.

The Company estimates that the Wick structure, which lies principally in the licensed area of Licence P2235, could hold in-place P50 resources of around 250 MMbbl. The Wick well targets reservoir sequences within the Wick structure.
